    Can you give a little more detail as to what you do that leads up to the undesired results?

    I had a server set up about 6 weeks ago.
    #Now I have transferred some more moresites onto it and need to set up the nameservers to point to it.

    All you have to do is restart bind to clear its cache:

    # /etc/init.d/named restart

    You can also use rndc command as follows flush out all cache:

    # rndc restart


    # rndc exec

    BIND v9.3.0 and above will support flushing all of the records attached to a particular domain name with rndc flushname command. In this example flush all records releated to domain:

    # rndc flushname

    It is also possible to flush out BIND views. For example, lan and wan views can be flushed using the following command:

    # rndc flush lan

    # rndc flush wan

    Here is etc/hosts localhost
    4545.6.7.21 server35

    Virtual Hosts

    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

    I was using external DNS and hadn't set up dns on my own server. Have done that now and am waiting for them to point the website. I may not have to deal with this until domain expires.

    I am a bit confused here. Do I I need to install bind on my own server?

    No, you can let the domain registrar maintain your records. What matters are the A records that map from to an IP address.
    If you ask for help, please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.
